Next make Flying Geese using (1) WHITE 5 ¼” x 5 ¼” square and (4) GOLD 2 7/8” x 2 7/8” squares.

With right sides of fabric together, lay two of the smaller squares on the larger square, as shown below. (They will slightly overlap) Using a ruler, draw a light pencil line diagonally from top left corner to bottom right corner.

Stitch a scant 1/4 inch on both sides of the drawn line. Cut apart on the center drawn line.

Press seams toward GOLD. Draw a diagonal line on wrong side of smaller square. With right sides together, lay one of the marked squares on the sewn unit and stitch scant 1/4 inch on both sides of drawn line. Cut apart on drawn line. Repeat with the remaining unit and the remaining smaller square. Repeat with the other WHITE 5 ¼” and GOLD 2 7/8” squares to make a total of 24 Flying Geese units that measure 2 ½” x 4 ½”.
